Announcement    **We will be closed on Monday, 9/7 for the Labor Day holiday weekend!**

Our third generation of wall hammocks has been meticulously engineered to be the strongest, most versatile collection we've ever created. This new collection has a thinner, sleek design, along with many functional upgrades.

We've spent the past 8 months working with engineers to create a new version of hammocks using CNC machines with a much harder material. Every section of the furniture can be easily removed and replaced. Pieces including sisal pole sections and climbing pads.

We've designed the new collection to be stronger, lighter, thinner, and around 15% less expensive than our previous collections.


Notice: If your package arrives damaged, please keep the original box and all packing materials until you are sure that none of your items have also been damaged. The carrier may require an in-person inspection of the package and all its original contents in order to issue a replacement. Please contact us right away, as we will need photos of the inside/outside of the box, as well as all items that have been damaged. We do our best to resolve these issues as soon as possible.

If you experience any issues with your order or believe you received a defective item, please contact us via email or phone. Please do not modify or alter the furniture, as this may affect its eligibility for return or replacement.


Our collections evoke feline instincts. Each piece is beautifully handcrafted, space-conscious, and feline addicting. You can enrich your cats’ environment with limitless configurations. The furniture we make is built from distinct, imaginative designs that arouse cats’ natural instincts and encourages them to use their minds. This stimulation, in turn, helps solve feline behavioral issues.

Environmental enrichment is very important for cats, being especially crucial for those kept indoors since many behavioral problems are associated with under-stimulated cats. Our furniture allows cats to have their own space that’s up high enough for them to feel safe, far out of reach of dogs and children. This extra vertical space can also help alleviate territorial issues in homes with multiple cats, as well as give them their own space to claim, up and away from your furniture.

At CatastrophiCreations, we focus on quality and strive to create beautiful and long-lasting furniture using natural materials like solid pine, 100% cotton canvas and sisal.


Our business hours are Mon-Thu: 7-3:30pm EST, Fri: 7-3pm EST

About CatastrophiCreations

Sales 13,262
On Etsy since 2013

Cats.

At CatastrophiCreations, our goal is to create an attractive and functional vertical space for cats to explore and relax on. Whether you have a lack of floor space and don't want to set up a large cat tree, you want to give your cats a fun perching area up high or if you need to solve behavior and territorial issues; our furniture is what every cat needs! We hand-make quality, sturdy and very fun alternatives to cat trees and cat towers that will have your feline friend up the wall in no time :)

Our business started as a hobby in 2013, building wooden furniture and sewing hammocks for our cats. We eventually started up our Etsy shop and sold some of our furniture on the side, building it out of our third story apartment in Portland, OR. We ended up moving to Michigan, where Mike is originally from and we didn't look around for any work and just focused on building our furniture ideas out of our two-car garage. It was kind of an experiment, seeing if the business could make enough for us to live off of so that we didn't have to have traditional jobs and our hobby ended up growing into a really cool business!

Mike's childhood best friend Gabe moved across the state and joined us as our first co-worker the summer of 2014 and he is now the general manager of our team. Megan's best friend Jennifer also ended up moving from Portland to join the fun in our new budding business. Three years later, we are working out of our 4,000 square foot facility with our 12 additional team members in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

We are lucky enough to have three very cute cats that are quite active and eager to test out our new furniture ideas. Every piece is first tested in our home for a month to make sure that the new concept is not only fun for them to play on, but is also functional for them to use. If they do not approve, we scrap the idea and try something different.

Ickle is our boy with the oversized paws and natural bob tail. Heisenberg is our skittish boy who likes to be up high, so that he may survey below for danger. Lylah is our 'sweet' little Calico.

At CatastrophiCreations, we focus on quality and strive to create beautiful and long-lasting furniture using natural materials like solid pine, 100% cotton canvas and sisal.

    This is Ickle. He is kind of special. He has big feet and a tiny little tail. He loves to lay on his back in spaces too small for his body. He loves trying to escape into the garage to roll around in dirt and making bird sounds out the window.
